...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Molly and Todd on Monday

 Molly here,

  Todd has taken to sleeping with me.  He used to sleep in his kennel but now he is only there when he wants to be safe or when B G goes to the store.  B G thinks he would be all right in the house.  After all the is not in the kennel when we sleep.  

 B G likes this flower.  It comes up every year.  

We don't know what it is but we like it.

(My friend John K says it is an Eastern Red Columbine (Aquilegia canadensis)- Thanks John.)

We like to sit in our yard.

 These are pictures of our cousin.  His name is "Scamp."  

B G thinks he is a cutie.  He was sort of timid but that is O K.  Todd is that way also.

You can see his bright eyes and the cast on his leg.  He gets along pretty well.

B G picked up our bouquet - He says it is for Mother's Day but we knew that he was just lazy and had not picked them up yet.

Here are some more photos.

B G had his coffee on the porch.  He finished his book.

 He is going to start another soon.  He is reading more and getting off the news.  He doesn't  read the news any more. And mostly he stopped listening to it....

And sometimes we just sit in the grass.  Here is a video of the porch so you can hear the birdies and listen to Todd when he barks. 
 Thanks for stopping by to see us.
